Sinclair sees Grealish progress

Former England international Trevor Sinclair believes Jack Grealish's recent transfer to Manchester City has improved his confidence when playing for the national team.

Grealish's England are 1/200 to win their next World Cup qualifier against Andorra, who are currently 66/1 to win with the draw 25/1.

Forward Grealish was part of Gareth Southgate's England side who progressed to the final of Euro 2020 earlier this summer with the Three Lions eventually losing to Italy on penalties.

And shortly after the successful campaign, Grealish finally departed boyhood club Aston Villa for reigning Premier League champions Manchester City in a mega £100million move.

And the 25-year-old has already become an integral part of Pep Guardiola's team in the 2021-22 season, playing in all three of their top-flight contests as they followed a 1-0 defeat to Tottenham with 5-0 wins over Norwich and Arsenal.

The former Villa man has one goal to his name so far but Sinclair, who played for City during his career, believes he has already seen a stronger mentality from Grealish, who started England's recent 4-0 thrashing of Hungary.

Sinclair sees Grealish development

That was England's fourth successive win in qualifying for the 2022 World Cup and they face Andorra and Poland in their remaining two matches in the current international break.

Speaking about Grealish, Sinclair said: "He's brought it all together and now on the international stage he looks confident.

"Before he looked like 'I'm in here but I'm still fighting for my position', now he looks like he's comfortable in the team.

"That's the difference between, without being disrespectful, playing for Aston Villa, where he's one of not many players in the squad, and playing for Manchester City, where everyone in the squad is an international."
